I didn't even need to open this thread to know Cars 4 Kids would be brought up in the OP.

Those Vonage commercials from the early-mid 2000s had terrible music.

Kars 4 Kids is truely awful.

I can’t stand the commercials during March Madness, World Cup, etc. where they rotate the same 7 or 8 commercials for weeks.

No hate for the Apple Commercial? That commercial is sadder than a Tracy Chapman single.

On TV, Radio or Sattelite.

First up.

The AWFUL apple ad with the son “story of an artist”. I was going to post the video but I would feel bad spreading that nonsense.
With the purposefully awfully sung awful song? Yeah that crap needs to die in a fire

Second.

1-877 Cars 4 Kids. Just kill me.
Man that takes me back (even though I’m only 27). Grew up religiously listening to WFAN with dad in the car, became a kind of habit.

Then one summer I worked at the cart barn at a golf course, mostly on my own charging and moving carts, with no company besides some crummy radio. I could feel my sanity slip with each introductory set of notes for that terrible jingle.

I was telling someone the other day I have no idea how Apple has the following it does - that commerical alone makes me never want to see their logo again.

Kars4Kids is even worse when you find out it hides the fact it’s a front for a religious charity.

Kars4 Kids is a Jewish charity apparently with the goal of connecting kids to their Jewish heritage.

Kars4 Kids is a Jewish charity apparently with the goal of connecting kids to their Jewish heritage.
"In 2017, the Minnesota Attorney General conducted a compliance review and submitted a 300 page report to the IRS. The report found that only 44% of funds raised by Kars4Kids went to good works, and that the charity had invested in a Ponzi scheme, in addition to losing $9.2 million from real estate projects controlled by the second cousin of the Kars4Kids CEO."
